17. Partnerships for the goals

In het kader van het Europese Life-project bundelen Natuurpunt en Coca-Cola hun krachten om de natuurwaarden te vergroten in een reservaat op de grens tussen België en Nederland. Via hun samenwerking worden landduinen in hun natuurlijke staat hersteld, waardoor opnieuw meer regenwater kan infiltreren en doorvloeien naar het moerassige Stappersven. Dit verbetert de inheemse biodiversiteit en beperkt het risico op overstromingen. Meer info: www.natuurpunt.be/node/9747
